Sometimes i go nuts when i get to fix other ppl's code, and they've
boobytrapped it bc it "looked nice" or bc it was possible to do something
really weird. In Delphi it is hard to boobytrap, but excessive use if with
is a good start. esp. if you use objects a lot. inside 3 with's and some
nested if's it's hard to figure out what object self refereces right now.
esp. if the with line is above the current top of screen.

Sorry for being offtopic, and happy new year to all.
